February 11. Musician, composer, author, and builder of outlandish instruments (the electric rake, the electric plunger, the electric toilet seat, etc.), North Carolina's Dr. Eugene Chadbourne is a musical maverick whose iconic, mad-genius status approaches that of his heroes the Mothers of Invention and Captain Beefheart. Heavy on experimentalism and satire, his vast discography straddles free jazz, rock, country, noise, classical, and folk and has found him collaborating with artists ranging from Dead Kennedys singer Jello Biafra to area jazz great Carla Bley to college radio faves Camper Van Beethoven; in the 1980s he performed in the outrageous trio Shockabilly. Here, the good doctor makes an unmissable house call at Quinn's. (Saxophonist Eric Person blows in February 5; Common Tongue twists it up February 13.) 8pm. $10. Beacon. (845) 202-7447.

Hey now, we still know how to brew that stuff from scratch.
